How would the UFC be if the rivalries were completely scripted?

    Think WWE storylines, but when the matches occur, they actually play out as a real fight ala UFC and not a choreographed fight like WWE.

    Just think... all the production, the storylines, and fun that would be? If you combined the best parts of WWE + UFC essentially

    The only problem is a fighter can't fight weekly like wrestlers do in WWE, but that doesn't mean they couldn't be involved in storylines leading up to their blowoff fights, plus an organization has like 500+ fighters... so they could fill an episodic television show every week/two weeks. On top of that, you could have a lot of faction (camp storylines) with guys fighting eachother... like Team Alpha Male against whatever the fuck gym Dominick Cruz trains at, or Duane Ludwig guys

    Imagine Dana trying to act like Vince, and he is out to get GSP, but GSP is revered, so Dana White continuously stacks the odds against him

    then someone like Conor comes along to fight GSP in the name of Dana White, and in the buildup does this with the Canadian flag

    CM Punk would be the champion

    well no, CM Punk would still have to fight. And unless its a quadriplegic he probably would lose

    just the build-up to his fight would be scripted

    It's been a couple decades since I watched WWE, but don't most of the story lines involve somebody interfering in the middle of the match? Doesn't seem like it could translate to the UFC. The best story line beefs the UFC has had is when somebody breaks the law, which obviously loses most of its effect if people know it's make believe.

    WWE scripted stories work because the actors are simply that, actors.

    There is either created drama in the UFC or bad blood. A script would be a hilarious disaster.

    Imagine Cody Garbrandt trying to remember words on a piece of paper?

    LOL at Herb Dean when someone smashes him with a chair.

    Real drama unfolds in the UFC which makes it more interesting when it does.

    The cartoon "characters" driven product wouldn't work with an adult audience. If UFC didn't exist, 1/4 of the MMA fans would watch Pro Wrestling. WWE fans jumped off as MMA became more popular because they grew up and couldn't tolerate the low-brow garbage heap.
